- Wood flooring Oak Smoked Elephant Skin Wide plank
A spacious factory was built under the fine Majorcan sun in 1886 - and the C. family renovates just this factory in 2017. After many years in London and New York, Aina C. was drawn back to the island to raise her two young daughters surrounded by nature, ocean, and sunshine. The old factory building of Aina’s grandparents seemed just right. But the upper level has been almost untouched for nearly 130 (!) years! There was quite a bit of work to do. The old terracotta tiles were beyond saving. New flooring had to be installed.
From Parador, the family received the engineered wood flooring Oak Smoked Wide Plank. Wood is a highly unusual material for a floor in Majorca, but the family knew: It had to be engineered wood flooring. “It’s hard to go back once you’ve had a wooden floor,” laughs dad Joan. “It’s so warm, and it’s nice to sit on the floor.” The right colour was also important: “The old-looking wood is just so stunning,” says Joan. "We looked at so many samples, but this one just matches it perfectly.” The red shade and the natural surface perfectly reflect the style of the building. The family clearly enjoys the new floor: “You can walk barefoot here, it feels so natural and nice!” It's clear - bright childhood memories can now be created here.

The family received the engineered wood flooring Oak Smoked Wide Plank from Parador - to match the old wood of the former factory.
Playing with bare feet is now also possible on the warm engineered wood flooring - the wood provides a natural feeling.
The dark shade creates a contrast to the white walls while complimenting the original wood of the old building.
Each individual plank is emphasised thanks to the 4-sided grooves- this creates an installation pattern with the flair of a wood floor made from real planks.
